    Forum Trump Administration Issues New Rules Tightening Immigration Enforcement The Department of Homeland Security issued new rules Tuesday broadly expanding the authority of customs and border agents to detain and deport undocumented immigrants. The rules, which implement executive orders signed by President Trump in January, prioritize removal of immigrants who have committed serious crimes as well as those who have been merely charged with crimes. The rules also prioritize deporting immigrants who have defrauded a government agency or anyone who an immigration officer thinks poses a threat to public safety. The rules also direct Immigrations and Customs Enforcement to hire 10,000 more officers and expand detention facilities. We discuss the new rules and their potential impacts.

    Radio Specials California Dream: Undocumented The View From Here -- This hour-long documentary combines three first-person stories of undocumented Californians with commentary and context by Sacramento State Assistant Professor Heidy Sarabia. It's narrated by CapRadio Reporter Julia Mitric. The first story won First Place in PRNDI's 2016 Short Doc competition. Many undocumented Millennials in California expect to go to college, and new laws make it possible. Laura Aguilar has been admitted to grad school, and hopes to be a dentist in four years, but she worries her immigrant status may still limit her. Plus, Bernardo Martinez Cordova came to the U.S. illegally and quickly found a job. He also found romance with American citizen Kara Davis. The young couple must navigate between two worlds as they raise their family, despite the threat of deportation. And for immigrants seeking U.S. residency, marriage provides a clear pathway. Being undocumented makes it complicated. Being gay made it impossible, until recently. His marriage was the last step in Juan Morales' 24-year journey out of the shadows.
